On May 7th, Flux Factory is holding its first ever FluxaThon (a collaborative twist on the traditional walkathon) to help raise money for another year of their artist run collective residency program. In case you don't already know about Flux Factory - it's AMAZING. A not-for-profit arts organization in Queens, Flux supports emerging artists in NYC through residencies, exhibitions, and collaborative opportunities. Their projects and events have a kind of anything-goes-as-long-as-it-works attitude and joie de vivre that make them incredible to be involved with.
Our team, the Flux Cluckers, is creating a giant, egg-laying, fire-breathing, glowing-eyed chicken on wheels. What's in the eggs it lays? Who knows - Cadbury Crème Eggs? Fried chicken? Tiny robot chicks? You'll just have to come to find out. We'll be posting progress pictures as it progresses, although not TOO much. We don't want to give away all our secrets. We think this video really captures our aesthetic inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fGILYTrW_M
How Can You Give? What Do You Get?
- Anyone who donates at least $20 gets FREE Admission to the after party at Smiling Hogshead Ranch! Come hang out with us!
- If you donate $50 you get free admission AND 1 free drink at the after party.
- If you raise $150 you get free admission and 1 free meal and 3 free drinks at after party, wut wut.
tl;dr - Donate some money to help us build a giant chicken on wheels, and (more importantly) to support the arts in NYC!
